let us take the hassle
out of Kickstart training

Why use our Kickstart Training Service?

As a DWP approved Kickstart Gateway, we have a wealth of experience of the Employability Training programme which is a critical success factor for the DWP to provide the placement funding to each employer.   

We have invested a substantial amount of funds in developing a dedicated Kickstart Employability Training Programme which critically, has been specifically approved by the DWP. 


Kickstart Scheme Logo

The user-friendly online portal guides young people through a number of training modules as well as providing a unique suite of videos, tools, assessments, and expert advice. It ensures the young person is in a much stronger position for future employment opportunities which is the government’s ultimate aim for the Kickstart Scheme. 

Employability Training Support

At the beginning of the process each candidate will receive access to our online Employability Training portal. This will aim to reduce anxiety and prepare candidates for what may be their first interview in a while.

Once on the scheme, we have designed a dedicated Kickstart support package that aims to support and prepare each Kickstarter to ensure the best chance of employment success. This will include:

  • Access to a Job Coach who regularly communicates with each Kickstarter on the scheme to ensure their wellbeing and skills are being supported correctly.
  • Access to training sessions on CV writing, job search and interview preparation.

The Induction training provided will include soft skills modules such as:

  • Attendance
  • Communication
  • Assertiveness
  • Timekeeping
  • Confidence
  • Hygiene

Finally, each Kickstarter will have a 121 with a Job Coach at the end of the process to review their CV, guide them on their job search, and provide interview guidance and advice.

The Kickstarter will have the contact details of their Job Coach to provide rapid and immediate feedback throughout their placement. This will be supported by regular 121s. Finally, as part of the final 121, an exit interview will be conducted to ensure all learning is captured and fed into improvements in the process for future participants. This will all be documented and aggregated using our CRM and applicant tracking system.

how much does it cost?

We offer flexible pricing solutions to meet the needs of our individual clients, depending on a number of factors including which level of service you require.

However, we guarantee that the cost of our services will never be more than the £1,500 grant you receive per placement and could be much lower.
